The Gallery is a little gem; a beautiful space which enables reflective and contemplative viewing of the fine contemporary art and crafts on display. The curation and display of the works show a sensitivity and understanding of display and relational context of art works.

Welcoming owner explained the range of artwork on sale, which varied in style and composition. This included different styles of paintings, prints and sculptures, plus jewellery and furnishings. Varying in price there are pieces available to suit all budgets. Worth a visit.
